The last hurrah of the summer maybe? A Cos skirt, bare legs and nude sandals.

Submitting to opaque tights means that winter is on its way. My steadfast refusal to wear them whilst there is any chance of a warm day means that for the last few weeks I have been wearing a lot of trousers. However, with the unusually warm weather today, I wore a skirt with bare legs – quite possibly for the last time of the year.



My favourite high waisted Cos A-line skirt is useful all year round. The length is good for me with, our without, tights – and that’s quite a rare skirt length to find. With nude shoes, a cream leather jacket and a Zara print blouse with gold skull buttons (subtle to the point that I didn’t realise the buttons were skulls until after I had got it home) I was good for my day in the shops.


Skirts are finally taking centre stage this winter. After many seasons without a great choice of skirts in the shops, they are at last featuring more in the collections. Keep you eyes open for a post about the options available!

    I am like you, just holding on to bare legs for as long as poss! But in 5 days time it's October, so think the old opaques may have to make an appearance! xx

      Sadly, I think that you may be right. Still hoping though….

    Another vote for bare legs for as long as possible. I do tend to wear flesh coloured tights post-winter into spring but summer into autumn I persist with a bare leg before giving into the black/patterned etc tights mid-October!

      Hello LS! I can't quite bring myself to do flesh tights at all, which does result in quite a lot of trouser wearing at times! But yes, it won't be long before we're hitting the opaques. I'm impressed with your optimistic view that you will last until mid October without them!
